Trying to get voice chat working
I haven’t been able to find anything on the forums in regards to this. I’ve set my PTT on steam to the same in the game and have verified that my mic and headset are working properly. Is there some reason it isn’t working? I’ve tried to talk to have people verify that they can hear me in game (as well as my brother while on the phone simultaneously) and I haven’t had any luck. Any bugs/issues or fixes I should know about?
RE: Initial Impressions - Post here!
I’ve logged 20hrs or so. Thought I’d give it some good playtime before posting.
First off: definitely a unique game and awesome concept. The music is epic when it plays (I wish it always did, not just when you’re down to the wire in a TO match), the deaths are epic and the kills are epic. It’s very chaotic. I think you partially get this feel because you can’t lock onto an opponent, which is cool.
I should state that I personally favor team objective types of maps. When the teams work together it gets even more epic. But a problem I’ve encountered is that most of the team objective servers I’ve joined the teams don’t work together at all, no matter how many people try to get it to work. It becomes frustrating when almost your whole team is more concerned with just getting into the thick of it than completing an objective. I wish there were a way to moderate this.
The current maps and multiple objectives per map are a fantastic idea. You need more of them. Cycling through 3 maps will get boring sooner than later. In fact, I find myself already playing a map or two and then going to do something else instead of playing because I’ve played them all about a dozen times already.
Voice chat seems broken. I’ve mentioned it in a separate post under the support forum and made a suggestion about registering TK’s somehow - I don’t care how really as long as it gets dealt with so that people can actually see who is Tk’ing and have proof before kicking them…. which reminds me, people seem to like to kick everyone for some reason. I went afk for about 2 minutes and I was having a vote to get kicked in progress when I came back to my comp.
The combat is good. Archery is hard as hell and I haven’t gotten it down well yet even though I’ve got over 100 kills with the longbow. Combo-ing seems pretty intuitive, but doing overhead and stab combinations seem to get caught up and miss alot because of the mouse scrolling. It could just be that I need more practice but I’ve definitely noticed this.
Initially I felt the maul was very overpowered and that archery is incredibly hard. Archery is very hard and I swear that archers do more dmg to me than when I’m arching, but hey, that’s just my lack of competence. I did notice that your website and the amount of ammo Javs get vary, and that I would definitely love to have a few more javs to toss - especially when playing Free-for-all. 4 just doesn’t feel like enough for the heavy ones.
I also think that that more than one fire pot and smoke pot should be offered. One just doesn’t last long enough and sometimes you need or want to strategically place them ahead of you go get a little closer. Archers that are good are very good and can snipe you from very far away (I sometimes wonder if they’re hacking somehow but would rather believe they aren’t). Having a way to progress closer would be great. Having one if not 2 more pots would be that much better.
Overall the game is a lot of fun and it’s easy to play for a long time. The graphics are good for the game, and the combat mechanics seem pretty good. I’ve gotten stuck in a few spots and had to F10 it to get out. It feels like the game isn’t quite finished yet. There’s definitely bugs and the server refresh rate is slow. Often times I’m still able to join games that are 32/32 on teh server list. This means to me that it either is innacurate or isn’t refreshing teh amount of people in it properly.
I’m definitely hooked enough to keep playing as long as the game keeps getting more polished, bugs get dealt with quickly, and more maps get added. Keep up the good work!
Don't penalize K:D's for getting team killed
Currently getting TK’d adds to your death ratio. It would be nice to have that as a separate score (so you can actually confirm people who are Tk’ing) or if you don’t want to do that simply remove the TK’s from your deaths.
It might be intended to have your TK’s count towards your deaths (since you obviously died) but I think it would be nice to have some sort of way to find out how many times you were TK’d or how many times someone did TK.
Make it possible to follow team members while dead
When you die, you can free float around but sometimes you’re no where near the action or you might want to watch someone else fight.
What about an option while waiting to respawn to follow around team members in 3rd person. Just press a button while dead (space, click, whatever) that can cycle you through 3rd person views of each of your living teammates.
Wondering if my comp can handle the game (specs included)
I REALLY want to play this game, but before I get it I want to make sure that my comp. can play the game at a reasonable fps without too much lag from low requirements.
I noticed that for xp the requirements are much lower than for win 7 or vista. I run on a laptop. specs are:
proc: T9600 coreduo (2.8ghz)
nvidia quadro fx2700m w/ 512mb ram vid card (use it for cad and other stuff)
plenty of HD space on a 7200rpm HD
would my comp be able to play it or will I need to see if I can get a quad core proc? My mobo doesn’t support the i-series procs so the best I could do without overheating the laptop would be a Q9200 or Q9300 if I can find them. Is my vid card good enough? It seems to be able to play some games like D3 perfectly well and whatnot.
Thanks for taking a look and letting me know.
